VODAFONE Fiji 7s captain Osea Kolinisau expects a strong finish in the final leg of the HSBC 7s series next month.

Kolinisau thanked the fans for all their support upon arriving from Hong Kong yesterday.

"We are disappointed with the result at Hong Kong and we are going to come back hard in the next two tournaments," he said.

Fiji claimed the Tokyo 7s title beating South Africa 33-26 in the final but succumb to England 7-17 in the Hong Kong 7s semi-final.

Coach Ben Ryan said the boys were really in good shape for the Tokyo 7s.

Ryan said fatigue crept in going to Hong Kong.

"We got them into really good shape for the first two days in Toyko and they played very well," he said.

"We beat New Zealand for the third time in succession which starts to get them more worried which is a good thing.

"Going into Hong Kong I saw the players being tired.

"All the teams were tired.

"You can see how hard it is to back up tournaments. When you look at a team like South Africa, a full time squad, they have more than $7.5million a year in their budget to spend," said Ryan.
